Videomaker by Mark Montgomery The Premiere Editing Suite
The Adobe CS4 Production Premium video-editing suite is a perfect combination of creative tools for the video-editing guru or post-production business. Enhancements to the CS4 Production Premium bundle include both the impressive "wow" features and the more practical updates that make video editing much more enjoyable. As with any expansive software suite, such as CS4, there is a great deal of ground to cover. In CS4 Production Premium, the bundle includes Illustrator, Photoshop Extended, Flash Professional, After Effects, Premiere Pro, Encore, Soundbooth, Device Central, Bridge and Dynamic Link. That's a hefty suite that's ideal for the professional video editor. For the hobbyist or casual editor, you might just consider Adobe Premiere Pro at $799.

Now it adorns that classic Adobe look with sliders and neatly-organized windows. The interface is clean and even more user-friendly. read more...
